Great views! Everyone loves this completely renovated 2-bedroom cottage 'High View', with a view of the Saco inlet and is just a stone's throw from one of Maine's best rated beaches! It is located on a side street and next to the mouth of the Saco River!
Hill's Beach is very quiet and just far enough to get away from all the tourist beaches. For the most part, the only people who frequent this area of beach are those who live on the street, approximately 10 houses. So the large, sandy beach is almost all yours!
A completely enclosed outside shower! Now you can rinse off with warm water after coming up from the beach!
If you have kids (like our family), you will enjoy the peace of mind being on a side street with very little traffic and the large yard for the kids to run and play while they wait for you to go to the beach. Once on the beach you will find a majestic, panoramic view of islands and a jetty...It is fabulous!

I (Jonathan) grew up down the road. I still have family is up there that lives down the street. Our family loves coming up for a week. It's a great get-a- way. So peaceful. Not a lot of distractions which creates great family time!
I would highly recommend this property for families with children of any age. It's even a perfect getaway for adults. We've been renting at Hills Beach since 2001, when we would bring our baby. There is no surf at Hills Beach so it's perfect for toddlers and young children. It's also a perfect, quiet spot for adults to relax. The only people on the this part of the beach are those staying in the few houses on the street so it's never crowded. Now that my children are teenagers, they still love going to Hills Beach and visiting the other attractions in the area. This cottage was perfect for our family of four. It's a plus that the owner allows pets, so we don't have to board our dog. We had rented other houses directly on the beach but chose this cottage on a side street a couple of years ago so we could bring our dog. It's only a couple houses away from the path to the beach so you can go back and forth to the house easily. We'll be renting this cottage again this summer. The house has all the accommodations you would need and plenty of room for 4-6 people. There's also an outdoor shower so you can rinse the sand off before going inside. It's close to Kennebunkport, Portland, Old Orchard Beach, and other tourist attractions.
My family stayed at High View for a week in July. We have been going up to Maine for years, but this year needed to find a new home that fit our needs (i.e. an 8 month old baby and a 80lb golden retriever). Stakes were high and our wish list was long. I'm so glad we took a chance on High View. Jonathan and Carrie were very responsive to our questions and made the booking process smooth. The home itself is great. Tastefully decorated, fully stocked with essentials for cooking, clean and bonus...baby proofed! It's located just steps to the beach, which is essentially private to the street. Low tide is incredible - you can literally walk to the nearby islands and explore. It's the perfect home if you have very young kids or older family members, as you can come and go from the beach as you please without having to pack everything up. The area itself is just beyond UNE, filled with lovely beach homes & cottages. The area even made for very serene and picturesque morning jogs before we hit the beach. All in all, it met our expectations and more. We hope to return next year!
My family had a wonderful stay in this rental. The location was perfect, just a short walk to the beach. My 2 kids and 2 dogs loved walking down to the beach every morning to play and run around. The house itself was spacious and had a convenient layout. It was great having the kids in their own room so they could go to bed in a quiet space even if we stayed up later. The porch was great for relaxing in the evening and my kids ate breakfast out there each morning. Will definately consider for our vacation again next summer! Thank you.
My family and I stay at the beach house every year. We love it there...the kids always look forward to our time at the beach every year. The main house is huge and we even have had college friends join us with their families as well. As a matter of fact we have college friends coming this year with us. We have never had any negative experiences while at the "beach house." Great location with a lot of things to do like: Peir fries, beach days, fishing, Fun Town and our family favorite the Saco Drive-in. If you choose this spot your family will love it...we are staying there in July this year.
We had a great time staying at this lovely well maintained Maine home! It is just a short walk to the beautiful beach, so we enjoyed that a lot too. We are eager to go back!
All of the peace, quiet, and relaxation of being in the middle of nowhere, without actually being in the middle of nowhere. The house was perfect! The location is a special seaside community, laid back, friendly and away from the hustle and bustle. The neighborhood was very quiet and steps from the beach and entirely peaceful. You are close to Saco/Biddeford, Old Orchard Beach, Ogunquit, Kennebunkport and Portland too. Endless restaurants including chains, supermarkets, movies and great stores are about ten minutes away. We spent many hours just walking along the ocean front, reading and relaxing. Everything about our stay was relaxing and low key and we felt very secure. The property was well maintained and the size and amenities were just as described. The owner was very responsive in replying to the initial request and answering questions that we had prior to the stay.
We found the home to be clean, comfortable and spacious for the two of us and our two dogs and would be large enough for a larger family. The house has basically everything you need and is well taken care of. When we arrived, everything was organized and very clean. I think we could have eaten off the floor! :) All the rooms appeared to be newly painted. Ceiling fans in every room, air conditioner in living room. The kitchen is fully equipped, had updated appliances and there is even a washer and dryer. The living room is cozy and fills with warm sunlight throughout the day. All was very comfortable and restful, light and bright and decorated very nicely .The back screened-in balcony was very relaxing and private which was nice to have after a busy day at the beach, a bit of a sanctuary And we slept like babies in the comfortable beds and woke up to the most amazing sunrise. For a dog friendly unit there were no smells which was good and we really appreciated having a place that accepts pet.
The internet access was a real plus- had the advantage of using the web to help track down places for activities and sightseeing and other more practical locations like the dog park, Dunkin Donuts etc
The property is on a second floor so need to consider going up the stairs (thinking not ideal for some elderly people or very young kids)!
We couldn’t have picked a better rental. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a lovely and relaxing getaway
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home
